What has happened to the continuing saga of the turbid life and questionable actions of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN)?

Well, it’s not clear where the various investigations into her alleged campaign finance issues stand.

But it looks like there may be something else to add to the list.

Omar tweeted out this, but later deleted it.

That sounds nice, right? She’s trying to help people who may be in need of food during the pandemic, with so many people out of work.

Hmm, but that’s an “Act Blue” Democrat link, and what does “partnering” mean? Sounds like it’s asking for donations to a site associated with her or through a Democratic site (which could then harvest the names).

But it gets worse. Omar deleted her tweet after she got this reply:

“I am the Executive Director of GMCC – Minnesota FoodShare is our program. Ilhan Omar had nothing to do with this project. I do not know where this money is going to,” the tweet said.

The account does appear to be the account of Adrienne Dorn who is the executive director of the GMCC.


Minnesota Foodshare is asking for donations through their own site.

Now, Dorn’s tweet appears to have disappeared as well. It’s just a guess, but I suspect someone behind the scenes said you shouldn’t be calling out Omar so publicly.

Omar’s electoral opponent is now calling this out.

So, Rep. Omar, can you clarify what was going on here, if any money was donated and where did it go?
